The words are from the children's book: "Don't Spill it again, James" 1977
This is also available for SATB a cappella
owls and the crickets are singing together,
The clouds have all taken the moon for a ride.
The first rain of summer is bending the heather,
As soft as a feather, I hear it ouside.
So hush now, you hoot owl and crickets be wary,
The morning is hiding behind the next cloud.
Let sounds of the evening be pleasant and airy,
Let nothing be scary, and nothing be loud.
